NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - State Rep. Curry Todd has waived a preliminary hearing on drunken driving and weapon charges and his case has been sent to a grand jury.

The Collierville Republican lawmaker's case was in General Sessions Court in Nashville on Tuesday morning before Judge Michael F. Mondelli.

Todd was arrested on charges of drunken driving and carrying a loaded handgun while intoxicated when police stopped his vehicle in a neighborhood near Vanderbilt and Belmont universities on October 11.

Todd is a retired Memphis police officer and the main architect of a state law allowing handgun carry permit holders to be armed in bars and restaurants that serve alcohol.

He stepped down as chairman of the House State and Local Government Committee after his arrest.
